Justifying the demonetisation move, RSS today said it is a step taken in the national interest with "honest intention" of initiating transparent monetary practices that will make the country's economy safe and vibrant. Head of RSS' communications department Manmohan Vaidya said that "all anti-national, separatist and terrorist activities in the country seem to have come to a sudden halt, resulting in restoration of normalcy in Kashmir Valley after a long time". "It is obvious that the common people have to face difficulties initially as this is a drastic step towards financial integrity and accountability in the country with the aim of making our economy safe and vibrant," he said. Vaidya said the decision taken by the government to demonetise high value currency notes is in national interest and with the honest intention of setting in motion cleaner and transparent monetary transactions and practices in the country. He said its impact is being felt everywhere and urged the people to cooperate with the government to help bring in transparency in the country. "We appeal to the people to cooperate and support the government in this noble endeavour, irrespective of the temporary but unavoidable inconvenience being caused.
We are confident that the patriotic people will cooperate with the government for a better tomorrow," he said.
